Traditional Christmas market in Vienna

Tauck’s 2019 holiday tours sold so well it’s urging travellers to book 2020 early

WILTON, CT — Due to strong holiday bookings this year, Tauck is encouraging travellers to book their 2020 Christmas getaways well in advance to avoid disappointment.

The company notes that its Christmas market river cruises and holiday departures of its Tauck Bridges family trips are especially popular. Its Tauck Bridges trips are available in Italy, Costa Rica, the Galapagos Islands and Tanzania, plus Tauck’s ‘Holiday Magic’ Christmas market river cruise is available to adults on the Danube and the Rhine.

With the increased popularity of these cruises, the company is also adding an all-new, eight-day ‘Yuletide Spirit: Brussels to Amsterdam’ Christmas market river cruise next year in Holland and Belgium.

According to Tauck’s CEO Dan Mahar, the company is expanding its Tauck Bridges holiday departures to meet surging demand.

“For 2020 we’re increasing our Bridges family trips by more than 250% over last year’s levels,” said Mahar. “In addition to adding the industry’s first-ever Christmas market river cruise for families this year, we’re adding two additional departures in Italy next year and an additional Bridges safari next December in Tanzania.”

Mahar also noted that Tanzania and Costa Rica are the two most popular holiday destinations for Tauck Bridges travellers, and that one of the company’s December 2020 Costa Rica departures has already sold out.

Other developments for the 2020 holiday season include the return of Tauck’s ‘Celebration of Roses’ event in southern California, which takes place from Dec. 29, 2020 to Jan. 2, 2021. The five-day event, priced from $8,170 per person, double occupancy, plus airfare, includes a behind-the-scene visit to the Rose Parade Float Construction Barns prior to the Rose Parade, as well as premier Grandstand seating the parade’s first turn – the same view provided to national audiences by television networks covering the parade.

Plus, guests will enjoy a guided tour of Paramount Pictures Studio, an optional visit to the Academy Award Museum, a private tour and lunch at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, and a Gala New Year’s Eve Dinner at the Fairmont Miramar Santa Monica. Football fans will also have the option to attend the annual Rose Bowl game, with tickets available for an additional charge.
